This was just a bored Sunday afternoon experiment. I had just enjoyed McDonald’s and thought up this anti gravity cake idea! Not knowing if it would work. But hey, it really worked!
I completely cleaned and dried the large sized McDonald’s cup and lid. In addition, I whipped up a simple Victoria sponge cake in the oven!
Once the cake was ready and completely cooled, I started to cut the cake into disc shapes.
I started to add the round shaped discs of cake into the cup, while layering buttercream frosting in between each one. I left a 3 inch gap from the last piece of cake to the rim of the cup.
Tricky Anti Gravity Cake Construction
I started with my melted milk chocolate, completely covering the top of the cake in the cup. You have to wait for this to completely set before adding another layer. I kept doing this until I could confidently tip the cup upside down without the cake falling out.
In between the drying process of the chocolate in the cup, I had time to work on the other part of the anti gravity cake. Using a round 5 inch cake card, I got on with the base.
I started with a big dollop of melted chocolate in the middle of the cake board and again waited for it to dry.
To connect the base to the cake cup, I used a 7 inch food safe wooden kebab stick. I pushed into the dollop of already set chocolate on the cake board.
I carried on with layer after layer after layer of chocolate to cover the stick. This was also to get height and to ensure that this was a solid piece of chocolate to support the cup filled with the cake.
Then, I attached the solid block of chocolate to the cup filled with cake with more melted chocolate. This step took some time.
When this was all completely solid the whole thing stood up as seen in the picture – just as i wanted it to!
For the ice cubes, I melted some clear mints into a standard ice cube tray. After waiting for them to set, I attached them to the chocolate with more melted chocolate. The last step was to add the straw, and then, presto! A McDonald’s Coke drink that is actually an anti gravity cake treat for two.
